Every year, summer in the city brings with it a wonderful variety of outdoor parties that get you outside to enjoy the warm weather and beauty of New York City’s natural spaces. One of the best ways to celebrate the season is to take part in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Soiree. Hosted by the Prospect Park Alliance in “Brooklyn’s Backyard,” the Prospect Park Soiree is an outdoor dinner party that offers guests an evening of dining and dancing among the bucolic setting of Prospect Park‘s Peninsula. Now in its third year, the one-night-only event will take place on Saturday, June 22nd. If you are an Untapped Cities Insider, you can enter to win a pair of free tickets!

The soiree is a bring-your-own affair where guests prepare a delicious meal, bring a favorite bottle of wine, and gather with friends old and new to enjoy the evening, while the Alliance provides live entertainment and the stunning park setting. Attendees are encouraged to go all out with their table decor and festive attire. Big, fancy hats and elaborate place settings are staples of the soiree.
